First Matches Revealed, Plenty of Debuts for GCW Return to the Ring

Game Changer Wrestling (GCW) is returning for their first live show since the pandemic started, with The Wrld on GCW, Part 2 happening on June 20, 2020, at the Celebration Plaza Amphitheater at White River State Park in Indianapolis, Indiana. It marks GCW’s Indiana debut, as well as their first event since their Acid Cup 2 this past March. Over the past few days, they’ve announced the first two matches, as well as revealed some names making their official GCW debut. The Wrld on GCW, Part 2 will air live on FITE.tv.

If you’re familiar with GCW, you’ve seen the aerial prowess of Blake Christian, one of their breakout stars of 2019. He’s facing off against Myron Reed, one of the top young stars in the US indie scene who is also making his official GCW debut – he was originally scheduled to do over WrestleMania week at GCW’s For The Culture, but the COVID pandemic postponed those plans. If Myron Reed looks familiar, that’s because he’s also seen on television as part of Major League Wrestling (MLW), where he’s part of the faction Injustice alongside another GCW regular, Jordan Oliver, and new recruit, Saieve Al Sabah. Reed is also the fourth member of The Rascalz (although he didn’t join Dezmond Xavier, Zachary Wentz & Trey Miguel in IMPACT) and has had some great tag team championship tandems with the likes of AR Fox (in FireFox, AAW Tag Team Champions), Stephen Wolf  (Glory Pro United Glory Tag Team Champions), and Sugar Dunkerton (aka Pineapple Pete in AEW) in Hot Chocolate (IWA Mid-South Tag Team Champions). On June 20, we’ll get to see him in singles action in what could be the show stealer.

Allie Kat vs. EFFY

Allie Kat has become one of the toughest women on the US indie circuit in the past year, thanks in part to her match history in GCW. She’s faced off against the likes of Chris Dickinson, Mance Warner, Matthew Justice, and even Nick Gage in a deathmatch, staking her claim as a no-nonsense feline who won’t back down to any challenge. Her opponent, EFFY, has also had some seriously hardcore wars in GCW of late, in battles against Rickey Shane Page, Jimmy Lloyd, Eddie Kingston, and also Nick Gage (in a deathmatch). And now these two will be turning their battle-hardened attention on each other, which should be another fun one.

Tre Lamar Makes His GCW Debut

A trainee of NXT’s Johnny Gargano and Candice Larae, Tre Lamar has exploded in the Midwest, where’s also in the Blood Diamond stable alongside Jake Lander and Kobe Durst and 40 Acres with AJ Gray and PB Smooth. The 22-year old is a regular with AIW, IWA Mid South, and Indiana’s own Black Label Pro, where he’s a former BLP Tag Team Champion with Lander. Lamar was also originally scheduled to make his debut with GCW over WrestleMania week.

“Indestructible” Calvin Tankman is still in the early stages of wrestling, but the 380 lb. Tankman has been on a steady rise since debuting a few years ago. A mainstay with IWA Mid South since 2016, and a former IWA Mid South Heavyweight Champion, Tankman has been a wrecking crew throughout the US indies, with the likes of Absolute Intense Wrestling (AIW), EMERGE Wrestling, Paradigm Pro Wrestling, and Bizarro Lucha, where he’s the current reigning BL Luchaversal Champion. Tankman was also originally scheduled to debut with GCW at For The Culture.

Another name who was meant to make his GCW debut at For The Culture, Pittsburgh’s Lee Moriarity is one of the most exciting young prospects in the US indies right now, and the 5-year pro has been making waves with Pennsylvania’s RYSE Wrestling, as well as Absolute Intense Wrestling (AIW), Bizarro Lucha, CHIKARA, Paradigm Pro Wrestling, and many more.
